Yes, I would like to cancel my subscription to 2021 after this free trial. All kidding aside, this year has started out with a bang, it got very rough, real fast. I hope things calm down as we go along.
Please calm down 2021.
Be safe and well good people.
Thanksgiving in America is a time for families of all types and friends of all types coming together to give gratitude for the things they have in this life. Granted it has a problematic past when you look at it with 21st century eyes and sensibility.
I will admit a lot has happened since that first Thanksgiving celebration that has not been good. However, I believe it can be a positive holiday for people where you can remember the past but forge a new future. In the days we live in being grateful is important.
For those celebrating where they are not fully accepted for one reason or another, I hear you and you have my support. Some folks cannot go home because they have been kicked out for living their truth on their own terms. LGBTQ folks especially. May your future be one of reconciliation and restoration.
As you observe and celebrate remember those who have been lost due to illness, violence, racism, and the Coronavirus. Many tables will have spaces where loved ones a year ago were celebrating. Much has changed since 2019 and I understand that fully.
Be good to one another. Seek peace and mercy as we head into this holiday season. lean on one another and be kind. Love to you all good people. Remember a big table is better than a small one.
I will do my best to lighten things up here on the blog coming up. But as in anything life will have its say which influences what you see here.
Well you get to see my words and musings for another year. I am proud to be powered by the great folks at WordPress.com. They focus on the heavy lifting so I can just create, connect, and communicate. Thank you all for your kindness, support, comments and visiting this little corner of the blogosphere.
Grace and peace to you all. Keep on blogging good people. Blogging is the way.
I have often thought blogging is very therapeutic and gives you a chance to share your woes with others in the same boat. Right now, we need that support for one another. Thanks for your candor and sharing your experiences that can help everyone make it through another day.
As I always say, keep on blogging my friends.
Everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect. I am usually harder on myself than others. Giving yourself space to be imperfect and human is one of the best things we can do for ourselves. Personally I have learned this the hard way. A lifetime of being a people pleaser and making errors along the way has made me take a step back and to realize I can’t please everyone and hope that they will forgive me and more importantly I won’t lose sleep over it all. It is important to show grace to everyone.
Another thought for this Sunday is to let love be real. Love one another. Be vigorous in serving ones higher power. Celebrate hope and give hospitality to strangers. That doesn’t mean always inviting them into your house but extending care to those who are in need. There are many things we can do to do good things and to kick bad stuff to the curb. Avoid revenge. People who do you wrong will have to face the music someday. Treat your enemies as you would wish to be treated and maybe they won’t be enemies much longer.
May you all find peace this week. I am hoping for the best for all of us. Grace, peace and love you crazy people.
